    Plain and simple, Eli Roth saw HARD CANDY, liked it, decided to make his own version, and simply wasn't up to the task.

    In spite of my otherwise good judgement, I'm giving this one a "like" -- as I've written before, liking a film sometimes has little to do with how good or awful it might be. This is kinky, poorly written fun.

    Is KNOCK KNOCK a home -invasion horror film? Dark comedy? Botched erotic thriller? Or is writer-director Eli Roth now simply staging his own wet dreams on film?

    KNOCK KNOCK has its moments, but far too few of them.
